    Are they Canadian? Strangely I recognize the panniers on the KLR but can't quite recognize the faces in that photo and I thought they were both on BMW. I think I met them in Valpo

    Mike, exactly who WAS the first ADV Member to visit Casa Blanca? Shouldn't they get some type of awards, a year free at your hostel and their picture hung over the exit?

    My thoughts exactly. The photographic evidence would hint that it was this ugly guy.

    Mike,
    Thanks for the pics, and for all your help when I was in Cali. I'm now back in Panama and the bike is in Buenos Aires. I'll return to BA in July and ride back to Panama through Brazil and Venezuela.
